Antinori - A Rosato Toscano 2015 Ml. 750
The Fattoria Aldobrandesca is located in the southern part of the Tuscan Maremma, right in the center of what is called the Etruscan zone of tufaceous rock.
The most common image of the Maremma is that of a maritime zone, one of plains and pine groves, horses and cowboys. The Maremma that we are dealing with here, instead, is the inland part, one which has the indisputable charm of tuff, the rocky bluffs on which, in ancient times, a number of outright fortresses now open-air museums such as Pitigliano, Sorano, and Sovana were erected. The vineyards of the Fattoria Aldobrandesca are situated right on a spur of tufaceous rock, surrounded by a lovely panorama of real archeological interest as well.
The estate was purchased by the Antinori family in 1995 and extends for over 193 total hectares (more than 480 acres) on a gently descending plain of volcanic origin with tufaceous sub-strata. The property is approximately at 200 meters (650 feet) above sea level.
